Destiny 2 Drang (Baroque) Guide – Drang God Roll & How to Get It

A baroque-n gun

Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted is here, and it’s the spookiest addition yet. With the return of Emperor Calus’ mighty Leviathan, players are tasked with venturing into this massive ship to deduce what happened to the corrupted vessel. Along with the new Nightmare Containment activity, players can earn new weapons, armor, and cosmetics for their Guardian.

Along with all the new dungeon and world drops, Season of the Haunted also introduces a collection of seasonal weapons. While some of these weapons have never been seen before, four of them are actually from the Season of Opulence. Surprisingly, one of the best PVE options is the Drang (Baroque) sidearm. This is due to the terrific perk pool and solid stats that make it quite terrifying with Solar 3.0 builds. Here’s how to get this sidearm and what the god rolls are:

How to Get Drang

Since this is a seasonal weapon, there are several ways to obtain the Drang. The first is simply by exploring the Leviathan and completing the Containment activity. At the end of this Public Event, you will be rewarded with some loot and can earn a Drang (Baroque) if you decided to spend 500 Vestiges of Dread at the secondary chest. Alternatively, you can also get this weapon at the end of the Sever weekly story mission or by opening up Opulent Chests. Keep in mind, that if you have any Bound Presence you’ll get extra rewards at the end of Sever.

You can also earn the gun by focusing Umbral Engrams at the H.E.L.M. This can be done by either spending 7 Opulent Umbral Energy to focus your Umbral Engram into the Opulent Weapons engram. While this is cheaper, you have a chance to get any of the four Opulent weapons so a Drang isn’t guaranteed. To ensure this sidearm, you will need to unlock the Opulent Weapon Focusing upgrade which lets you specify which gun you want to focus your Umbral Engram into. This is going to be more expensive, but it’s the best and most consistent method for getting a Drang.

Drang PVE God Roll

  • Smallbore
  • Tactical Mag or Accurized Rounds
  • Disruption Break
  • Incandescent or Rampage

When it comes to the Drang there are a couple of directions you can go for, but I am going to focus on the Solar 3.0 variant. For the barrel, I am picking Smallbore for the +7 boost to both range and stability. Sidearms always struggle with range, so we want to bump this to ensure we can safely engage targets without our damage dropping off. As for the magazine you can go for either Accurized Rounds for even more range or Tactical Mag if you want to increase your reload speed, magazine size, and stability.  I prefer the latter, but both are solid options so it depends on what you prefer for your playstyle.

In the first primary perk slot, you’ll absolutely want Disruption Break. It’s the best-in-slot perk for the PVE roll and synergizes beautifully with Incandescent. Plus, the enhanced version of this perk extends Disruption Breaks debuff, making this especially effective in endgame PVE content that has a ton of Solar shields. Well-Rounded is also fine, but it is best when used in combination with a grenade or melee-focused builds.

As for the second primary perk, it should come as no surprise that Incandescent is here. It’s a comically strong perk, allowing players to efficiently spread the Scorch status effect to multiple targets. If you want something to just buff your damage then Rampage is the best option. Yes, it’s not terribly flashy, but the perk is still quite effective — especially with a Rampage Mod.

Drang PVP God Roll

  • Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Moving Target or Quick Draw
  • Rampage

Unsurprisingly, I am focusing on increasing our range stat for the PVP roll of Drang. Hammer-Forged Rounds and Accurized Rounds give us a combined +20 to the range, allowing us to consistently engage targets without being comically close. If you favor handling, Corkscrew Rifling is also good, but I personally prefer Hammer-Forged Rifling for this sidearm.

For primary perks, both Moving Target and Quick Draw are great in the first slot. While I’ve always liked Moving Target for close-range weapons, Quick Draw is also quite good since the enhanced version also gives us +5 to handling. Regardless of which one you pick, Rampage is definitely what you want in the second slot. The damage boost is quite nice and makes Drang pretty potent in big 6v6 game modes like Rift or Control. You can go for Zen Moment if you’re having trouble with the recoil, but I honestly don’t think it’s necessary.
